About this listing
Antique Indonesian teakwood cottage, private deck, hot tub and very special, large artistic bathroom/sitting room. Beautifully rural, yet just 6 minutes from Petaluma. Centrally located to the coast, all Sonoma/Napa wine regions, redwoods and S.F.
The antique Indonesian cottage is made of beautifully carved and colored teak wood, and is quiet, cozy and romantic with lovely views. It abuts a large private deck and hot tub. Just a few steps across the deck is the very large, luxurious, art filled, centrally heated private bathroom and sitting area. The cottage itself is unheated although there is a premium electric mattress pad with separate controls on the king bed.
Aside from the private deck, hot tub and bathroom/sitting room (with 6' tub and shower), guests can access 2.5 peaceful acres, woods and fields and Helen Putnam Regional Park one mile down the road for spectacular hiking.

Other Things to Note
In the 1970's this property was Swallowtail Studios, a famous glass blowers cooperative. The Grateful Dead played in the barn and hung out here...their manager lived just down the road. The barn is redwood, quite large and beautiful, with stained glass windows.
Check out the listing of our fantastic tree houses. On Airbnb go to Tree House at Swallowtail Studios in Petaluma, CA. and Tree House Swallowtai Magic Grove.
Just a few house rules:
1. The cottage is for 1 or 2 adults only...no children or pets.
2. No smoking indoor or out...severe fire hazard.
3. We are in a bad drought and on a low producing well so ask our guests to be ultra conscious of water use...short showers, turn off faucets, etc.
4. We do like the quiet out here.
5. Enjoy yourself!
